Literally here on the streets of Miami Beach, as you can see, the lighting out here is not perfect, but it still does not hide the fact that this is one gorgeous. Looking SUV, you can see this has the new design language. The Genesis just introduced it's called athletic elegance at the front. You can see it's dominated by the company's new crest grille. It actually reminds me a lot of a Bentley, which is a good thing. This thing to me looks a lot better than the Bentley of Antigua and whenever they announce pricing, this should be significantly less. You can see the genesis grill or the emblem is right here, which again kind of reminds me of a Bentley. These quad beam LED headlights are going to be standard equipment on this car. You can see it's a very distinctive look, which kind of reminds me of a Porsche. It just looks very expensive and that's kind of where Genesis was going. The brand has really been killing it in terms of the designs. A lot of their sedans are doing well, but, as you can see, a crossover is really what they've been eating for quite some time now, underneath the hood, this car is going to sport to power trains here in the US. The base engine will be a 2.5 liter turbocharged, four cylinder. It should be the same one that's in the Sonata and line which, in that application, makes 290 horsepower I'm imagining this is gon na, be a little bit more.
The optional engine will be the 3.5 litre twin turbocharged, v6, so it's an all new v6. We haven't seen this v6. Yet, unfortunately, Genesis doesn't have power figures just yet, but it does come standard with an 8 speed automatic and remember a rear wheel. Drive is gon na be standard. All wheel drive will be an option. This car is riding on a new dedicated rear drive platform, so it doesn't share anything with the key Italia ride or the Hyundai policy. Now, as you can see here, the wheels on this particular one here are a massive 22 inches that's right. You can get 22 inch wheels on your GV 80 they're riding on 265 with tires. I think this might be one of the best looking wheels that I've seen in the luxury segment. They really fill out the wheel wells nicely in this car. They didn't have figures in terms of ground clearance or the actual suspension on what it uses. But we'll talk about that of course later, when this car goes on sale this summer. Now, as you can see the rest of the side profile, this is a relatively big looking SUV, because it is this. Car is around 195 inches long it's well, based at 116. Inches long is about 2 inches longer than the tell you so remember, not the same platform, but it really gives it the same. A really great presence this cars about the same size as something like a bmw, x5.
So again, this is why they're calling it the GV 80, because the B stands for versatility and the fact that it's, an 80 means that it's a mid sized offering, because they will be eventually offering a GV 70, which is more compact and then a GV 90, Which they're still kind of toying with the idea of that now, looking at the rear of this vehicle, you can see the same kind of design language. We first saw in the genesis G 90 with these twin LED taillights. The genesis badge is kind of spelled out back here and then there's, a very tasteful looking font that I'm seeing her actually looks relatively good. I think again reminds me a lot of a Bentley on this car, but remember it's, not gon na have the same kind of price that we're talking about here now. Looking at the trunk area, Genesis actually hides the little release over here and when you open up the trunk. Obviously, this one has a power liftgate, and it also has an optional third row, which I'm gon na get back there in the third row later and show you guys the space, but I don't have official figures just yet. Genesis, of course, will announce that at a later date, but you can see if you just push this button over here, the seats will fold down the front. Seats also are the second row. Seats can also fold down as well, but they're not fully electric like the third row.
But when you pull down these seats, you can see it offers a fairly good amount of cargo space. It almost looks like it's, pretty similar to the last. Tell you right in policy that I saw so obviously with a luxury SUV. The exterior design is important, but what about the interior and, as you can see, I'm literally parked on the street of Miami, because it is a crazy kind of unveiling here. There'S. A lot of people here Genesis wanted to make sure this car was getting a lot of coverage and a key, as you can see, with the lighting in here. The interior is really impressive. If you guys find the interior of the Telluride and the pallasite impressive. This is going to basically take it up. One notch above that you can see the dash has complete leather stitching everywhere. There'S real aluminum trim, there's real, you know, matte finish wood in here. The seats up here up front are heated and cooled. The driver's seat has that new massaging adaptive seat chambers, where it has seven different air chambers genesis, says it's designed to reduce fatigue and then, of course, the centerpiece here is that massive 14 and a half inch entertainment display it's. A split screen display it's kind of similar to the interface we've, seen in the other Genesis products, but, as you can see here, this is a touchscreen and it's also controlled from this rotary dial down here, which all of it has really high quality controls.
The wood here looks beautiful. I love this shifter here with the kind of glass like of appliqud over here. That makes it look more expensive and then the steering wheel is an interesting addition over here. You can see it has a unique two spoke. Look that kind of reminds me of the current generation mercedes benz s class. Before they refresh, you can see there's an LCD display over there, a 14 and a half inch display over here and then another LCD display over here. The knee pad over here is even quilted in leather genesis said that that was part of the higher trims. As you can see, there's a lot of beautiful, LED lighting, where you can kind of customize everything. So overall, the cabin is gon na obviously impress you as much as the exterior designers vehicle, but this car is supposed to be a family car. So let me hop into the back seats and show you guys what the space is like now going into the second row of this vehicle. You can see this particular one here has a bench seat now, I'm, not entirely sure. If Genesis is gon na offer a captain's chairs, but I do like the fact that they do allow the seats to slide forward and back that's, because this car offers a third row that's right. A third row seat will be optional, but, as you can see here, if you guys are sitting in the second row, there are a lot of features in here to make it a really nice place to spend time.
The seats back here are also heated and cooled. I'M, guessing that'll be an optional feature. You have your own set of climate controls, there's some rear seat air vents over here. All the materials are also really high quality there's, a lot of LED lighting there's, even a little mirror here. So you can kind of do your makeup and check to make sure that you're looking good whenever you get to your events, the door panels over here you can see, are also soft touch. There'S. Actually, a power retractable shade here, which is really nice again it's going to you know, give this thing a uplevel feel versus it's more. You know plebian Hyundai and Kia cousins, but let me hop into the third row over here. Let me show you that, is that really quickly cart, you can access it by pushing this button over here, you can see it kind of slides the seat forward and back or forward, and when you get back here, let me see there's actually a button back here That I can push – and you can see the seats back here in the third row – are actually power, retractable, which is nice. I don't have any legroom quotes or figures back yet or back here just yet, but you should know that this car, since it's, based on a rear, drive architecture, it doesn't feel quite as spacious as the last tell you right in Palestine. I sat in, however, sitting behind or sitting over here on this side.
This is with a seat all the way back. I actually found it find it to be rather comfortable back here now grant granted I'm short I'm five foot seven. So you know obviously you're taller friends are gon na find a little bit less space back here, but in terms of stuff there are rear seat. Air vents. You can see. There'S a metal speaker cover there's a little bit of storage back here cupholder.
